's overwhelming popularity of latino men and women. and i don't include this on the table, but there is a gender gap among the 10 catholics. the two men are less likely to support obama and women but generally speaking the vast majority of latino men are supporting obama. what's driving this is immigration. for latino voters the economy was the first issue most important, but immigration was a close second. roughly one in for latino voters said in the state immigration was their major reason for going to the poll. you can see how that is going to be benefiting barack obama in this election. interestingly while why catholics are more likely to vote for romney overall. they're still a gender gap. respect to the views on abortion, health and human services birth control method, religious freedom and the culture of dependency, it appears the bishops vocal opposition to the health and human services mandate is not something most dashing most catholics from supporting. at least when supplied to catholic hospital or universities. only a slight minority of catholic women and men support the health and h
it was a lack of understanding of the importance of the latino community. i think they don't understand how fast we're growing, how influential we have become and how politicians are now forced to respond to the issues that affect latinos. i think that they over saw that. i don't think they really paid attention. >> sometimes we are invisible and we are fighting so hard not to be invisible. the commission of presidential debates are stuck in the 1950s. they still think the country could be divided between men and women and that's it. they do not realize that one in every three persons in the united states is from a minority. they think it is okay it have an african-american president but they don't think it's okay to have an african-american or hispanic journalist as a moderator for the debates. what we did, it was our wonderful response to this oversight, this huge oversight. instead they didn't want to invite us to the party so we had our own party. >> and that party turned out pretty good. >> so, yeah, maybe. >> you mean the presidential forums you're having? >> yes. >> which came after you w

and the way in which latino catholics catholics are more likely to support the democratic candidate -- it will not be as good as from deducter in future election as it has been in the past as a bellwether. one of the things that we've focused on the election season is how the catholics vote is important how it can be seen a bell bellwether or swing vote. in between the different religious groups here. these are from exit polls from recent election. you can see, it's a percentage of the groups that are supporting the democratic party candidate. either for the president or off year election for the member of the house. and you can see on the right there the furthest column to the right those are people with no religious affiliation and those with another religious afghanistan which is neither christian or jewish is heavily supporting democrat in the last decade. you is see protestant they haven't won in the last decade either. i wouldn't expect them to have any chance in the election either among the prod accident. the catholic vote is the one that is swinging back and forth. it's the
